What’s the deal with giving flowers?
Women like receiving flowers. Men think flowers are stupid.
Men think: Flowers die, they don’t do anything when they are alive, they are expensive, and they are a cliche.
Men know that women in general like flowers, but men also believe that women they know personally do not like flowers.
So, here’s what you get:
Flowers make the giver happy. The act of giving flowers elicits a real smile (as opposed to a fake, oh-that-was-nice smile) more often than other gifts of similar cost, according to research from Jeannette Haviliand-Jones, psychologist at Rutgers University. And men are conditioned to react very positively to a real smile.
Men give flowers at work, too. Not every bouquet means I love you. Some bouquets mean, “Get the project done on time or we’re screwed.” Give flowers during crunch time because flowers and plants at the workplace increase productivity.
Alternatively give a Flower Gift Box, that won’t die fast. See Deanna’s beautiful craft project to inspire you:

What is a friend? According to Aristotle: “A friend is a single sole dwelling in two bodies.”
Friendship plays and important role in our lives, to a large extent. Friends can help you find the meaning of life by helping you overcome challenges, they are people in your life that care for you and they simple add joy and meaning to your life.
In difficult times, friends make you see things from a different point of view, allowing you to take time to reflect and examine the situation. It allows you to see another perspective of the circumstances and find a way to overcome your challenge.

Friendship is a feeling of love and affection of one person for another. This feeling of love must be reciprocated. Otherwise friendship cannot be possible.
Friendship does not exist where tastes, feelings and sentiments are not similar.
It is said that a friend in need is a friend in deed. We can examine the sincerity of a friend during our time of hardship and trouble.
Only a sincere and faithful friend remains with us at the time of our trouble. All others leave us. It is very painful when our friends turn traitors.
It is very difficult to find a true friend today.
Good friends exercise good influence. They always help their friends, in distress and inspire them to walk on the right path.

In order for a deep understanding to occur between friends it requires opening up about personal things, listening carefully, and being loyal to one another.

June 01, International Children’s Day
I wish a very happy and joyful holiday to all children of the world!
Children’s Day is celebrated on various days in many places around the world, in particular to honor children.
The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland proclaimed June 1 to be International Children’s Day in 1925.
Traditionally kids receive very special attention from their family, including Birthday-like presents. All drivers are expected to drive with their lights on all day long to demonstrate extra vigilance over children’s safety.
Schools usually hold activities such as camping trips or free movies on Children’s Day to allow students to have fun, and children of civil servants might also receive small gifts from the government.
Many organizations from both government and commercial sectors have celebration activities for children. Children can enter zoos or ride buses for free.

365+1 FAMILY QUOTES AND PERSONAL NOTES.

The source for fully loving a child is found within each and every parent’s heart; it’s the capacity to love.
L is for Limit-setting. Whoever invented the word love knew that the first letter needed to stand for limit-setting. Good behavior just doesn’t happen. Appropriate behavior and the benefits of hard work—sticking with something until it’s done well—need to be learned through consistent limit-setting.
O is for Open Communication. Being understood builds self-worth. It means first listening to a child, especially during a conflict, and then putting the L into play—limit-setting. Yelling and consequences are not open communication.
V is for Valuing. At the center of love is the letter V for valuing and validating. Disciplining children effectively requires both V’s; they are as important as a child’s need for food. Value two things: what your child does right every day and the feelings a child has during a conflict.
E is for Empathy. Teaching your child to stand in another person’s shoes ensures less risk for physical health problems and develops kindness, compassion, and quality intimacy. It’s the lifeblood of enduring close relationships, the most gratifying life success your child can experience.

Back in the middle ages, people thought of children simply as little adults. Modern psychology has destroyed that theory.
More than 50 years ago, the psychologist Carl Rogers suggested that simply loving our children wasn’t enough. We have to love them unconditionally, he said — for who they are, not for what they do.
Nurturing children is about the way we love them, the way we bring them up.
A parent’s love is our children’s destiny. A parent’s love is whole no matter how many times divided. It’s the legacy we give them.
Parents need to show their children that they do love and care for them.
Simply saying “I love you,” or taking part in a child’s activities and interests are very straightforward means for a parent to show a child love.
International Children’s Day is approaching. Show your love to your kid with a homemade gift: a Mint Manet Gift box filled with
365+1 LOVING MESSAGES AND BE YOURSELF QUOTES
